If the TV (sound settings, output mode) will let you leave the internal speakers on with the optical output active then you connect a bluetooth transmitter to the optical input and pair your headphone with it.
If the TV won't let you do that then you will need to split the optical output, connect both a soundbar and the BT transmitter to that.
You will need to set the optical output to PCM stereo in either case.

However, to avoid using a splitter, there is an Avantree unit I have seen (UK and Australian Amazon) that has a pass-through mode (put the unit first in  line, then use a second optical cable to the Soundbar, then pair your Blutooth Headphones to the BT transmitter):

Get a "spdif to analog" adapter - Bluetooth headphones are suggested.

About $6 US from ebay or similar (it is easy to pay for more than you need). You will also need:

spdif cable [coaxial (orange color phono connector)or optical/Toslink]

usually a 5 vdc power source - using either (center pin positive) :

    low cost is a USB to barrel (round) cable to a nearby USB output or

    otherwise a small 5vdc power adapter

most adapters have a red & white phono jack outputs, so you may need an RCA to headphone adapter depending on your headphones. (I would choose to transmit via Bluetooth to wireless headphones. but would require a spdif to Bluetooth adapter instead.)

Note: Some LGsmartTVs have Bluetooth built in;  check yours.

LGtv (optical/Toslink or coaxial)   TO  dig/ana adapter  TO  headphones

      Hi everyone,
       
      I just bought a new LG television for a lobby in the company.
      It's a 55" LG Smart TV with WebOS.
       
      This tv is to show the narrowcasting system. But after a few hours the tv gets in to something like a screensaver.
      The narrowcasting is playing with the webbrowser from the installed apps.
       
      Does anyone knows how to get the screensaver off?
       
      Thankyou very much:)

      Hi,
      the WebOS specs stated that HLS is supported but didn't mention CMAF (or fragmented MP4) support.
      Therefore my question if CMAF(HLS)-Encodings are supported?
      Regards
      Riva

      Hi everyone,
       
      Has any of you updated OTA or manually to the latest webOS 2.0 firmware? It was released on June 13th in Europe and it is ver. 4.05.01! 
      Any new features or performance improvements?

      Hey there,  I have had a  OLED55B6P for ten months and I love it but

      I have a problem all a sudden, just today it starts to show a black screen with fire works every minutes if I don't press a button on the remote.

      I have no eco mode on, no power save modes on, TV firmwire is up to date, and tried turning off on and on the tv.

      anyone know how to fix?

      I've got my ThinQ and Google Home apps and Google Home speakers set up to turn off my LG C1.  But they won't turn it on, I guess because the TV isn't listening for commands when off.   I expected that enabling these Settings|General|Devices|TV Management|Quick Start+ Settings|General|Devices|External Devices|TV On With Mobile|Turn on via Wi-Fi would do it, but it did not.
      OMG I just discovered that Alexa turns on the TV...and I never even had to open let alone set it up in the Alexa app!
